How do I access an embedded table in 4D using SQL?

How do I access an embedded table in 4D using SQL?

How do I access an embedded table in 4D using SQL?

I'm already connected to 4d using the ODBC driver, and I'm able to make simple SELECT queries to access information, but I've come across something I can't seem to figure out.

Looking at the 4D Table diagram, there is a FSF table (it contains several columns that hold pricing information), that is a column within the Inventory table.
If I'm not clear, in other words, in table "Inventory", there is a column called FSF that is a table, containing columns of pricing information.

How do I access this information in SQL?

When I "Select FSF from Inventory", the result is one column that contains numbers in the -e8 range.  I consider myself pretty good at SQL, but haven't ever encountered a "nested table" like this.

Any help is appreciated.
